Laurel’s Update

In September, we had our first Anti-racism week at Brookfield. This included special assemblies, lessons and the reading of carefully selected books in class. Similar to Anti-bullying week, we hope this raises the profile of how we promote and encourage anti-racism within our school. On Monday, we launched our Black History Month learning. Black History month allows us an opportunity to develop the understanding that Black History is everyone’s history and something to be celebrated and embedded in school learning. This year the theme ‘Saluting our Sisters’ showcases pioneering black women who have made significant contributions to literature, music, fashion, sport, business, politics, academia, social and health care, and more. If, as a parent or carer, you would like to be more involved with the work of our Anti-Racism Committee please email

Another way you can get more involved with our school is by becoming a parent governor. We currently have a vacancy for a new parent governor. You can read more about becoming a governor and what is involved on our website, or get in touch with our Chair of Governors, Emma if you would like to know more. Next weeks newsletter will contain a letter and application form.
